I got a comment on the tracking SBI Mutual Fund NAV post about switching from one SBI plan to another, and finding out which one is good for you.
I must admit that I don’t know which SBI mutual fund is best for you, but I can point out a few resources that can help you make a decision.
The first one is a page from Value Research that will help you see a list of SBI Mutual Funds, their returns, and other details.
Here is how to get to that:
1. Go to the home page of Value Research Online.
2. Click on “Funds” on the top.
3. Look at “Search Tools” –> “Family Scan” –> Choose AMC, and select “SBI” and click “Go” – on the right side of the page.
4. The page that comes up will have a little blue link on the top right which says: “Analyse Fund Family”. Click on that link.
5. On the page that comes up – you will see all the mutual funds offered by SBI, their category, Value Research rating, risk and volatility, return grade, 1 year return and expense ratios.
This data will give you a quick look at SBI has to offer, along with their returns. However, keep in mind that these are just past returns and that alone is not a good enough indicator on what to buy. This can be a good starting point for your research though.
The Value Research page is an excellent resource, but it doesn’t have description on what each fund is about. I did a post about this some time ago called SBI Mutual Fund.
You can go to that page and read brief descriptions about many of the mutual funds listed on the Value Research comparison, and that will give you an idea of what the funds are all about.
If you are interested in reading about specific SBI Mutual funds – I have covered a couple here earlier:
At this point, this is all I can think of, anyone has any other ideas?
